At K-12 Clothing, we understand school organizations' challenges when raising funds. That's why we have developed an effective, delicious, and ethically sourced coffee fundraising model. With each coffee bag sold, your school or parent organization can earn $5 in profit. It's a win-win situation – supporters enjoy premium coffee while contributing to a cause they care about, and your school gets the funds it needs to support various programs and initiatives.

The Appeal of Coffee Fundraising

Coffee holds a special place in the hearts of many Americans. According to the National Coffee Association (NCA), 66% of Americans drink coffee daily. It's a beverage that transcends age, gender, and cultural barriers – a cup of coffee is enjoyed by students, parents, teachers, and school staff. Many schools already host "coffee with the principal" sessions, highlighting the strong connection between coffee and the school community.

By tapping into the existing coffee culture, coffee fundraising becomes a natural choice for school fundraising efforts. It offers a product already loved and regularly consumed by a significant portion of your target audience. When supporters purchase coffee from your fundraising campaign, they satisfy their caffeine cravings and contribute to your school's financial well-being.

Stay tuned for the next section to explore how coffee fundraising works and the options available to your school or parent organization.

School Fundraising with Coffee - How It Works

Setting up a coffee fundraising campaign for your school is simple and straightforward. We offer two convenient options that cater to the needs of your parents and supporters.

Option A: Direct Purchases through a School Store

We'll build a customized online store exclusively for your school's coffee fundraising campaign. This store will be accessible to parents, grandparents, school administrators, and anyone who loves coffee. The store can be accessed from mobile devices and tablets, ensuring easy browsing and ordering.

Parents can visit the school store and select their preferred coffee options, including the type of coffee, grind, and size. They can customize the coffee bag with optional text and images, adding a personal touch to their purchase. Once parents have made their selections, they can proceed to the checkout and place their order.

The best part is that we handle all the logistics. We'll ship the coffee bags directly to the parents' doorstep, eliminating the need for sorting or distribution on your end. This streamlined process saves time and effort for your school or parent organization.

Option B: Bulk Purchases through our Website

If you prefer a faster and more immediate option, you can purchase coffee bags in bulk directly from our website. This option is perfect for schools or parent organizations that want to stock up on coffee inventory and sell it at events, school stores, or community gatherings. Bulk purchases ensure you have a ready supply of coffee bags to meet the demands of your supporters.

Whether you choose, rest assured that our coffee is of the highest quality. We work with expert master roasters who have perfected our roasting profiles, resulting in a rich and flavorful brew that your supporters will love.

The Math of Coffee Fundraising

Coffee fundraising provides a delicious and enjoyable product for supporters and a lucrative opportunity for your school or parent organization. Let's break down the math and see how coffee can fuel your fundraising efforts.

Your school or parent organization earns $5 in profit for every coffee bag sold through your fundraising campaign. Let's consider a hypothetical scenario where you sell 100 coffee bags. That's a total profit of $500! This amount can significantly impact your school's budget and help support various programs, extracurricular activities, and educational initiatives.

Imagine the possibilities if you expand your reach and sell even more coffee bags. With the popularity of coffee and the convenience of online ordering, it's not uncommon for schools to exceed 100 bag sales. The more bags you sell, the higher your profits climb.

Coffee fundraising is a versatile option utilized throughout the summer and beyond. Whether you set up a dedicated online store for a limited time or maintain an ongoing coffee sales program, the potential for fundraising success is immense. You can tailor the fundraising period to your school's needs and goals.

Not only does coffee fundraising generate funds, but it also builds community engagement. Supporters feel a sense of pride in contributing to their school while enjoying a product they love. Coffee becomes a catalyst for fostering connections and strengthening relationships within your school community.
